Check out Emmy's interview with the band, Eternal Closure
Emmy: How did the name come about? EC: We just threw around ideas until something stuck. I (Olivier) remember we also had ''A Year and A Day” and “Empty Faces” as some of the other choices. Looking back, I think we made the right choice. “Eternal Closure” sounded the best to us and we thought that it could mean different interesting things to different people. It's a fun (almost) contradiction and I'm a big fan of that.
Emmy: How would you describe your genre to someone who isn't familiar with your music? EC: We blend Metalcore and Progressive Metal in a way that's pretty both old-school and modern. There's a bit of everything but we try to mix it all in a way that is coherent and original. Emmy: How did the band form? EC: We have been playing in the Montreal scene since 2012. We were just friends having fun playing some heavy music. We evolved and became more serious We've been through quite a lot of member changes through our history, taking the project more and more seriously as time goes by.
Emmy: What are some of the artists that influence you? EC: It's a blend of bands like Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, August Burns Red, Periphery, Haken, Dream Theater, Gojira, Currents, Architects and Protest The Hero.
Emmy: If you could tour with any artist or band (still active or not) who would it be? EC: Any of the bands mentioned above really haha. If I had to pick only one it would be Gojira probably. Their shows are just incredible. Also they speak french like us so why not haha.
Emmy: What's your favorite show you've played? EC: Our first album release for “Screaming In Silence” in 2016 was incredible. It's one of these nights where everything comes together to make for a memorable moment. There were many technical issues but we didn't care, nothing could ruin it.
Emmy: What's the future hold for the band? EC: New music that's even stronger than before. There were some internal changes due (in part) to the pandemic and I'm pretty excited to show people how much of a step forward the band is taking. “Color of Our Fears: Rediscovered” is still a great album in my opinion, and you should really check it out if you like this type of music. However, I feel like we're doing something special with the new songs.
